Chapattis can help in controlling diabetes or not? I show most old man eat Chapattis for diabetes issue.
Mr. Lybrate-user, chapatis are like roti and rice, as all these foods contain starch. Starch is converted to glucose in the intestine. Hence, eating more chapatis is definitely not beneficial or advisable. Wheat flour from which chapatis are made is containing mainly starch. 100 g of whole wheat flour gives 407 calories, about 87 g of carbohydrate, 16 g of proteins and 2 g of fats. Hence, taking more wheat flour as chapatis is definitely ideal for controlling diabetes. It can be a part of the total food. As far as I know, hardly anyone will depend on chapati only for sugar control.

How to prevent blood pressure and sugar?
The way to remain free from high blood pressure and diabetes (t2), is to adapt a modified life style. Which includes: 1) regular exercise and practicing pranayam & yogasanas, 2) avoid smoking and alcohol, 3) avoid deep fried foods and too much of sweets, 4) intake of table salt to be restricted to 2g a day, 5) consume more green salad and fruits and breads made of whole grain flour. If family history is there more care has to be taken.

Lybrate-user, hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), which is the autoimmune condition, causing hypothyroidism. Treatment is same like hypothyroidism. With thyroxine tablets. The problems mentioned could be part of the symptoms of ht. However, some times digestive problems may not be connected with that condition. It is better if you increase intake of green leafy vegetables and fruits, that will help in reducing this. Plus hypothyroidism has to be well controlled.

Balanced diet is important, containing carbs, proteins and fat in proper proportion. If you want to develop strong body and muscular one apart from eating well, it is necessary to exercise under the guidance of a competent physical instructor at a gym. Then also include extra proteins (6 - 8 eggs a day), reduce fried foods and increase intake of fruits and dry fruits.

tsh value of 6.5 milli units / ml, is subclinical hypothyroidism. Usually no treatment is given. If you have any symptoms related to hypothyroidism, then treatment may be initiated. Precautions are: take iodinated salt, avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, mustard, radish and coffee. Exercise regularly to prevent weight gain. Check tsh levels periodically once in 6 months, to see any change has occurred. When level goes above 10 milli units or if symptoms appear then treatment needs to be initiated.

Hi, basically novo mix is a newer insulin analogue with a mix of 30% short acting and 70% long acting insulin. On the other hand human mixyard is a conventional insulin. The difference is in their properties and effectivity.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

If your first tsh was less than 10 uiu/ml you should not have started medicine altogether. At first report if tsh was 5.4 treatment was not required except in patients who are pregnant or infertility, galactorrhea with raised prl. Which was not your case. And for obesity thyroid replacement is not started. Once treatment is started your normal gland becomes lazy and if you miss few tablets or don't take it empty stomach or take anti acidity tablets, then these variable values of tsh comes. I would suggest you stop thyroxine and repeat tsh only after 3 months and if it remains less than 10 don't restart thyroxine. 15% population have tsh upto 7-8. No need of treatment in them ok.

Your tsh values are in normal range with above dosage? hypothyroidism normally doesn't cause weight gain more than 4 kg. Your weight gain is may be related to diet. According to your height and weight and bmi you fall in obese 1 cat. You should give more attention on diet along with exercise. There are certain medication like metformin and orlistat that might help to loose weight but that needs prior clinical examination. You can consult your diabetologist or endocrinologist for the same.

yes...smoking increases levels of thyroid. you can take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Hyperthyroidism is a state of excess thyroid hormone production Pt has typical symptoms like profuse sweating ,palpitation, wt loss despite good appetite, increased bowel frequency, goitre and bulging eyes often. If one is suspected this condition they shd get a thyroid blood test ie. T4 andTSH done.

Hello, it is better if you give details of thyroid test results, like t3, t4 & tsh. Because if a person gets hypothyroidism, it will not go away. Hence, treatment has to be continued for lifetime. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are swelling of face & lower limbs, slow heart rate, early fatigue, tired feeling, intolerance to cold, joint pains, dry hair, dry skin, hair fall, menstrual irregularities, excess flow, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, inability to conceive, bad pregnancy outcomes and weight gain. So my advise to check thyroid hormones once again and report the same and if tsh levels are high, then treatment has to be restarted. Thanks.
